New foster care case manager at Catholic Social Services


Catholic Social Services of the Upper Peninsula has a new foster care case manager, Kelsey Segerstrom, who started June 1.

Segerstrom graduated from Northern Michigan University in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. After graduation, she moved to Appleton, Wis., where she worked at ATTIC Correctional Services as a direct support staff in a transitional living home for women coming out of the prison system.

Segerstrom also worked at Bellin Psychiatric Center in Green Bay, Wis., as a behavioral health specialist. During her time with Bellin Psychiatric, she helped implement treatment programs for children and youth patients.

Born and raised in the Upper Peninsula, she moved back and began work at U.P. Kids as a direct family assistance worker.

Segerstrom is excited to continue working in child welfare with CSSUP as a foster care case manager. In this position, she will work closely with U.P. families to help them reunify.
